According to legend, the Valais vintner Léon is supposed to have invented raclette. One cold day he warmed a piece of cheese over a wood fire and enjoyed the melted cheese. Produced in the Valais, today the cheese is enjoyed as a special culinary treat. Raclette tastes just as delicious during the winter as in summer. Eating raclette outside is a particularly enjoyable experience, with the cheese melted over an open wood fire.
Place to taste raclette
There are a large number of soft cheeses and imitations of Raclette cheese today, but the original Walliser Raclette AOP remains unsurpassed. This is because only in Valais has Raclette cheese been made for centuries by the traditional method from raw milk. Valais natives enjoy Raclette with potatoes, pearl onions and pickles.
